“Arctic” by Customs House

Corporate Event | Launch Party with DJ Ben Shipway

Cocktails in an igloo with river views? That sounds like my kind of party so I was excited to spin the launch of “Arctic” by Customs House on the Brisbane River. Customs House has partnered up with Belvedere Vodka to bring back their iconic pop up igloo bar and they needed some music to set the mood for a classy evening of cocktails and socialising.

A big part of being a DJ is matching the music to the pace of an event. If you play music that is too slow, old, laidback or quiet you can drag down the energy. And if you play music that is too dancy, intense, harsh or recognisable you can make your guests feel uncomfortable because you are pulling their attention; not good!

This event was very social and they needed a vibe that was classy and energetic while still sitting in the background and allowing conversation to flow freely. We decided on a jazzy house vibe, incorporating groovy and smooth bass lines with traditional instruments like saxophone and guitar. I had a great time digging through some classic tunes to put together this playlist.

Check out the video to feel the vibe for yourself 🙂
